new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

the sun sets at anavyssos

we each did our own thing at anavyssos yesterday afternoon again -- one fished, one read, one shot pictures.

the windsurfers:

i mounted little white onto my 40D and i tried to get some candids of people. i'm painfully shy about doing this, so even a few is a major victory.

as the sun set, i tried to get a few shots of the color. i had an old tripod with me that is really a pain to align so i basically just rested the lens onto it instead of actually screwing it on -- so i'd call these semi-hand held.

the remains of the day:

the sun moves on to light another part of the world:

the swimmers left, a scant few remained to enjoy the warm evening and the fishing enthusiasts started work.

as it started to get dark, we went to a little tavern to have a bite of seafood and salad -- as our order was being prepared, i noticed that the bay had taken an unusually fiery glow. i madly switched lenses -- 50mm then 10-22mm -- and i propped the camera onto the windowsill. it was really dark so most of the shots were useless, but i managed to salvage a few.

a light show begins:

... and i've placed the images on the map, on the original flickr page.
